Life-Size Talking Monster
Gemmy
www.Gemmy.com

Monsters are scary, but a monster that sings? That’s a nightmare. This life-sized creature is a scary, moving, blinking and blabbering beast. At six feet tall, the monster's animatronic head, mouth and eyes all move to properly frighten children and small pets. Also, his heart and brain light up to remind you that he has feelings too. Not to mention—he collapses down for easy storage in a closet or under a bed, where he truly belongs.
$125

Pottery Barn
www.potterybarn.com

For an eerie, yet decorative place to store your candy corn, try Pottery Barn’s Verlaine Urn. With a classic bronze finish and a choice between wide fluted and tall, these urns offer an upscale alternative to the plastic candy bowl. In the off season they become stylish additions to a living or dining room—leave them out to hold a fern or potted plant. Before you put the kiddies candy in there, however, remember to remove the ashes.
